Here comes the bride! Cheryl Hines is a married woman after tying the knot with fiancé Robert F. Kennedy Jr. over the weekend. The beautiful couple wed on the Kennedy compound in Hyannisport, Massachusetts. The family home was once owned by President John F. Kennedy and Jackie O., one of the most famous style icons in the world.
Speaking of fashion, the bride donned a lovely tea-length Romona Keveza gown with no straps to the casual outdoor affair, and the groom wore one of his signature tuxes. The marriage, which is a second for Hines and a third for Kennedy, comes only two years after the couple began dating a while after being introduced by a mutual friend.
“I was separated at the time, and Cheryl was still married,” said Kennedy of their relationship. The couple was not a couple at first. They became friends and their relationship did not develop for a while afterward.
Their guest list including many famous faces – most of which are Kennedys – as well as some of Hines’ Hollywood friends, including Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Kevin Nealon. The wedding was an elaborate but very casual affair at the compound, which was supposed to be an elopement with just the kids. Hines mentioned that the wedding guest list kept getting bigger and bigger, and it’s all because of their mothers. She tells reporters that they wanted to elope with their children, but that they wanted to involve their moms as well. From there, they invited a few others and a few others, and before you know it, they had one big wedding to plan.
“They next thing we knew, it was a wedding!” said Hines of her big day. Congratulations to the newly married couple, who commented to reporters that getting married was a lot of fun for them, and very exciting.
